2012 NFL Playoffs TV Schedule: Times And Channels Set For Opening Round

The 2012 NFL playoff bracket is just about set, but we've already got TV broadcast schedules to work with.

Though every matchup isn't quite sewn up just yet -- the Atlanta Falcons, for one, still need an opponent -- we now at least know when each game will take place. For most fans, that means you can go ahead and carve out a wide, wide block of free time for next weekend.

Remember, we're just looking at the wild card round, meaning the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens won't be joining us until next week.

NFC

Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints: Saturday at 8, NBC

Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys OR New York Giants: Sunday at 1, Fox

AFC

Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans: Saturday at 4:30, NBC
